If your student is a bus rider near Weatherly Club Drive, The Cove, The Huntley apartment complex (PHS & PPMS Buses 22-05 & 16-19) or Chandalar (Pelham Oaks Bus 22-05), please check the bus schedules. Some bus numbers and times will change EFFECTIVE TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 5. To view bus stops & pick up/drop off times, click here.

Reminders: Morning pick up and afternoon drop off times are approximate. Please have your student at the stop 5 minutes before morning stop time. Thank you for your patience as we make changes to adjust and improve transportation for our students.
